An Appeal Court has declared the candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Mr Alex Otti, as winner of the April 11 Governorship election in Abia State.

The court in its ruling on Thursday ordered the swearing in of Otti, as governor of Abia State and asked Mr Okezie Ikpeazu to vacate the office.

Mr Ikpeazu of the Peoples Democratic Party was declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and also had his victory upheld by the Election Tribunal.

The Abia State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal had in November dismissed the petition filed by Otti challenging the election of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as governor of the state.

Otti had sought the nullification of the election on the grounds that it was marred by malpractice and irregularities, but the tribunal held that his petition lacked merit.

Unsatisfied with the judgment Otti, who resigned as the Managing Director of Diamond Bank in 2014 to pursue his political ambition, took his case to the court of appeal.

Ikpeazu has reportedly said he would challenge the decision at the Supreme Court.
